Actually I think red MSD wires would go with MSD coils better...since its the same company! LOL, sorry had to.

MSD and Taylor wires are both great and I doubt you would notice a difference between the two, but I'm anal and spent the extra money to match my coils and wires.

I think I am going to go with the Red Taylor Pro-Spiro Wires from Hector $50.00, which includes shipping, is about the best deal I have found.

Allen when is you site going to stocking these items and get some prices posted on you site?

It might be a month before I get them so I will check around again for the best deal.

I talked with MSD and the best wire is always going to be there wire in their mind...But the tech said the Taylor wire is just as good. I want to also mention that the best way to go is to use the adapters along with the coils. These are a universal system used for most of the Gm line v8 or v6.

I have Taylor wires and they are great.

It'* just that my supplier buys products from different places & gets the best deal, therefore I can get the best deal too. So my price on these items changes with every stock order my supplier gets! For right now, MSD Coils & 8.5mm Wires for BC members are the same as BA Members prices as posted here:
http://www.bonnevilleattitude.com/fo...hp?p=3275#3275
This price may change over the next little while as my supplier may be getting them for cheaper at one point. As the Cdn dollar is now at around $0.73 USD, prices change with the Border taxes to get these products up here from the US Manufacturer.

That is why you will not find any price for some products on my site especially the "Other Performance Products" section of my store. http://www.bonnevilleattitude.com/st...7cc817364e95ec Each price quote will be done on an individual basis I'm afraid for now. If I can get a better supplier that is willing to give a "Fixed" price on these products from the USA, then it may change. Just so you all know, I'm not making alot of money here on these items as they cost me almost as much as they would you in a Auto Parts Strore! My store is set for up for "convience" & "availability" more than just great prices. I do try to keep prices as low as possible too mind you.

I still say stockers are just fine. My friend Dave has a 97.5 Regal GS that runs 12.7'* with stock coils. I know of several people in the 12'* that run stock coils. They are more than enough.

Want more proof?
